The Research Cloud’s High Performance Cluster provides researchers with access to computational resources. Access to these resources is provided through Virtual Computing Lab (VCL) and High Performance Cluster (HPC):

The High Performance Cluster (HPC) is used to execute parallel programs or multiple instances of the same program each driven by a different parameter set. This service is powered by IBM Platform HPC Version 3.2, which incorporates LSF Express. Remotely submit a job to a specified number of computers for execution

The Virtual Computing Lab (VCL)
provides dedicated access to a range of computing environments for researchers to access from any networked location either on or off campus (using VPN). Reserve a customized remote computer with a desired operating system and set of applications, and remotely access it over the Internet: The remote computer is provided by VCL to compile code, edit documents, analyze data, perform file transfers, etc.

The VCL and HPC are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you would like to request an account, please click here.
